    I would recommend requesting 1600 loop. There don't appear to be any non-pet full loops these days, but 1600 and 1700 are the least convenient for pet folks, and 1600 has two (count 'em, two!) comfort stations guaranteeing that you will be pretty close to one of them. You can call CRO back and ask them to add a note to your reservation that you need easy access to a CS due to physical limitation. And, about 5 days before arrival you can send a FAX directly to the Fort repeating the request. The fax number and a sample fax are available in the Fort FAQ sticky.

    I actually prefer the 1600 loop with my dog, as do many other pet owners I know.

    Ok, I guess I was trying to combine multiple streams of thought into one. I would say that 1800 is the most pet-friendly Full loop, so forget that one. 1700 and 1900 are both rather long walks to the bus stop, and share one not-so-convenient comfort station, neither of which seem ideal for a disabled guest. So, IMO 1600, with two CS's and the convenient proximity to two bus stops makes it best suited.

    I have a 32 ft double slide travel trailer and 1600 didnt work at all for us, narrow site and the only way to get my slides out was to split the water post which meant I had no room to reach between the slides and pull my tank valves unless I crawled 5 ft under my slides.
    If they try to put me in 1600 again I will not take the site.

    no pets...........that is soooooooooo funny!:lmao:

    Good luck with that! Just get the dog silencer and you won't have to worry about it!

    We were in 1700 in May and really liked it alot! Not near the dog walk and I didn't see poop bag thingie's anywhere but plenty of dogs. Love the dogs, hate the barking!:thumbsup2

    No excuse for a barking dog, thats bad humans, not bad dogs. I like the 1700 loop much more, better site size and not quite as close together.

    What he said. 1600 and 1900 are my least favorite loops. Now that 1700 is one of the only few full hookups I will always request it first. I was in 1710 a few weeks ago and it had a lot of room for a 31 footer.

    There was a pop up with a poodle barking all day. I called the front and they sent security who did nothing. It happened to be the one day we didn't go anywhere. I saw a guy from another site delivering a note to the door and the next day no more barking. Musta been a shut your dog up note lol.

    Hmm... hadn't thought of it before, but maybe it's worth it to have a little FW note paper handy in case you need to leave a friendly "shhhh!" note for your neighbors. ;)

    I guess it depends on your actual trailer configuration, but with my 31'2" single slide I don't have a problem. In all our times staying in the 1600 loop (about 16 or so to date) there was one time with our old 26' trailer where they assigned me any inside loop site that I just couldn't get into.

    We are in the 1700 loop now. All the full hook-up sites are pet loops.

    Hijacking the thread
    We will be in a full hookup site also.

    Any recommendations for a 39 ft diesel with slides on both sides?
    No pets here either.
    Plan on using car for transportation to parks. (we don't call the kids Load 1 and Load 2 for nothing. Boy they are HEAVY when they are sleeping)

    Most of the sites on the outside of 1700 when you enter are really big and good for big rigs.

    The site we had in May would be good for you 1739 as would the last two when you exit the loop...1740 and 1741. We requested 1741 but were alot happier with 1739. They tried to put us in 1724 but when we got to the loop I didn't like being so far back in the loop away from the exit and the site was kind of small. I walked the loop and called the front desk and told them I wanted to switch and he said no problem!

    Have a great trip!

    Team bradfield - 700 loop is premium. tlh0726 wants a full hookup.

    tlh0726 - My recommendation would be the 1700 loop. It's one of the nicest in the 1600-1900 area, which are the only full hookup sites.

    I am not a huge fan of 700 because there is no comfort station on the loop, you have to cross one of the main thoroughfares in FW to get to the 400/500 CS. There are some sites that a relatively close to it, but most are not. If you don't use a CS, 700 would be great, if you do, I find 600 and 700 to be really inconvenient.
